Child sexual abuse is a hideous crime but it happens every day across the United States and often goes unreported. It is reassuring to know that a team of attorneys has dedicated themselves to representing clients sexually abused as children. They are aggressive in their pursuit of justice yet respectful and understanding toward their clients.
A coaching situation is ideal for sexual predators because a coach can build trust in a child and has a degree of authority and influence with the children they are working with. Coaches can be employees of schools or playgrounds, volunteers, or temporary help for sports activities. A coaching position is a position of power over children and an offender can take advantage of the situation and turn it into an arena for child sexual abuse. For those who seek legal action against the abuser, the benefits can include:
Child abuse victims may always live with the repercussions of the acts against them, but they can feel some peace of mind knowing that the right action taken in the court system against a sex criminal can make a difference.
